NHSCA Fall Conference 2018

 

October 19, 2018

 

Grappone Conference Center, Concord, NH

 

“Conquering the FEAR FACTOR:
Understanding the role of stress in Kids with ADHD and LD”

 

With Dr. Jerome Schultz

 

“A day of interactive multi-media learning, we’ll examine the protective role of stress, and how  a student’s perception of competence can move the needle from ‘good’ stress to ‘toxic’ stress. How many kids are in a state of chronic stress that impedes learning and memory in a way that goes way beyond the initial effects of the diagnosed condition? Research, stories, art work, brief videos and stress-reducing cartoons will be used to help participants develop a new way of thinking about our built-in response to threats and challenges.”


Learning Objectives:

 

  • To  Identify brain structures and chemical processes involved in the stress response.
  • To Consider that the negative behaviors often seen in students with LD and ADHD are the defensive, protective behaviors that are the consequence unabated stress.
  • To be able to Explain the protective function of “Saving FASE” (fear, avoidance, stress and escape).
  • List several practical strategies related to the DE-STRESS Model of intervention.
